    He is tiny, perhaps 2 lbs? His crow is pretty unique but I didn't record it. He has been living on his own in the wild for over a year I think. We have lot's of coyotes, feral cats, etc. so he's doing something right. He walked to within 10 feet of me. Any breed guesses or just a barnyard mix? Should I take some feed when I cycle tomorrow?[​IMG]

    He looks like some kind of gamey/bantam mix to me. Wow that is a long time for a chicken to survive, he must be pretty plucky!

    Probably a game breed mix.

    Thank you all for taking a look! I looked at the American Gamefowl thread and I see what you mean.

    I cycle the parkway every other day so I think I will take a baggie of feed to scatter around. He seems to be doing fine on his own though!

    Maybe I will find some Game Girls to give him:)
